In 2008, best friends and moms, Melissa and Voula, grew tired of missing out on some of the great family-friendly events and activities in their hometown of Calgary. They put their heads together in search of a solution, decided to start a website that would keep local parents in the know about all of the family-friendly opportunities in the city, and Family Fun Calgary was born. Since that time, these ladies have grown the Family Fun network to include 5 other cities across Canada and introduced the popular Family Fun Canada page which explores travel tips and destinations that hold appeal for Canadian families. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the amazing Family Fun Canada network, Family Fun Edmonton, which came on the scene in 2012, has compiled a list of our readers all-time favourite stories:
